CANCELLATION of Boil Water Notice Shandon Water System

The Boil Water Notice issued on Tuesday, December 19, 2017 for the Shandon water system is CANCELLED

Testing indicates that the Shandon - CSA16 water is safe to drink.  It is no longer necessary to boil your tap water or for you to consume bottled water. Because water flow was disrupted, flushing of the system was done to remove sediment and assist in maintaining water quality and clarity.  You may experience discolored water, but it is not a health hazard. The Department of Public Works recommends running the hot and cold water faucets in your home for five to ten minutes to clear any discolored water from your pipes (click to see notice).


The County Department of Public Works wishes to thank the citizens of Shandon for their patience and understanding during this situation.  Further, the Department reminds all persons who may be excavating or otherwise working around water lines to follow all construction protocols and precautions.
